Treat for the eyes

I thought of introducing an additional feature to this research blog by making it semi-informal.
I would extend the blogposts about peroxisomes with suitable interesting and sometimes non-scientific material like pictures suiting the mood of article or useful links, pictures, video etc.

    And about the picture, I love the way Rakesh captured the Almost perfect symmetry in nature. The blurry yet colorful background of the leaves enhances the beauty to yet higher level
